Texans lose game; Watt breaks leg

The Chiefs put on another display of offensive fireworks as they ran past the Texans, 42-34 at NRG Stadium. 

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw for 324 yards and three touchdowns to key Kansas City and rookie Kareem Hunt surpassed 100 rushing yards.  Charcandrick West caught a pair of scores and Tyreek Hill returned a punt 82 yards for a touchdown.  The Chiefs are the NFL's lone unbeaten team at 5-and-0. 

Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson threw for five touchdowns in defeat, including three in the final quarter.  DeAndre Hopkins finished with three TD's and Will Fuller the Fifth added two as Houston dropped to 2-and-3.  Watson has accounted for 10 touchdowns over his past two games, including nine through the air. 

The Texans lost more than just the game. Houston star J.J. Watt left the game with a serious injury. 

The Texans announced Watt suffered a tibial plateau fracture.  NFL.com is reporting Watt will be out for the rest of the season.  He will also have an MRI to see if there is any ligament damage in his left knee.  Watt missed 13 games last season due to back surgery.
